Carpooling isn't everybody's cup of tea -- a fact that has influenced a recent surge in concept cars that accommodate just one or two passengers. The ucar by Garcia-Verdugo is one of such vehicles that recognizes people's desire for independence and convenience. It also solves for many of the pressing issues that plague the automotive industry and its consumers.
Dr. Lino Vital Garcia-Verdugo conceived the μcar with an avant-garde pod shape that keeps the body aerodynamic but as compact as possible. A maximum of two people can fit inside the cozy vehicle, beneath the sleek transparent domed roof.
The need to efficiently maneuver through urban traffic was a concern that drove the nimble design of the ucar by Garcia-Verdugo, as did the possibility of future driverless technology.
